Inclusive Practices in Education Settings EMT603

Hobart, Launceston


Please note - EMT603 Inclusive Practices in Education Settings is the co-requisite theory unit for EMT600/EMT613 Professional Experience 3. Co-requisite units must be either enrolled concurrently or the theory component (EMT603) successfully completed in a prior semester of study. If you have not met the theory requirements, you will be ineligible for Professional Experience 3.


The unit will explore the nature of inclusive education in the 21st century with an emphasis on diversity and exceptionality. Based on a philosophical foundation that values every student and acknowledges the right of every student to the most appropriate educational opportunities, this unit involves independently researching and analysing the complex theoretical and practical issues associated with effective inclusive education. You will be required to develop an advanced and integrated understanding of learning and teaching approaches to suit the diverse educational needs of students. You will build on your understanding of theories of human development and learning in relation to student diversity and exceptionality, applying planning models to include all students.
